Kilmovee CoderDojo launches with a very successful get together, 18 young people (and their parents) turned up for the introductory session, on Saturday 6th February in Kilmovee Community Centre. A huge thank you to everyone.
Kilmovee CoderDojo is a FREE initiative to help young people to learn & understand coding. It relies on volunteers and voluntary contributions. We will never charge for attending a session. We do however require parents of younger members up to 12 to stay for sessions, of course you can share responsibility, but by staying you can learn and help your child in their development.
To help Kilmovee CoderDojo develop it will need your assistance to succeed.
You can help in a number of ways – by contacting local businesses for support, small financial donations, physical donations and time.
The Dojo will need funds in the coming weeks for:
- Extension leads (with surge protection)
- Projector & Screen
- Routers & wiring
- USB Lanyards or wristbands for our rewards system (“Belts” like in a Karate Dojo)
- Spare laptops
- A small working committee
- Mentors & volunteers
- Tea & Coffee / Soft drinks (possibly a biscuit or two)
- And other stuff soon too
There is still time to register ahead of the 1st official CoderDojo Session on 20th February
